PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang Tries to Race a Mercedes-AMG A45 and Ends Up Regretting It: Video

A Ford Mustang and a Mercedes A45 AMG were involved in a huge crash in South Korea after both cars figured into an ill-advised race that quickly got out of hand. A video of the race taken from inside the Ford Mustang shows the muscle car blatantly disregarding traffic laws in the country. According to the description, both the ‘Stang and the A45 AMG were reportedly running at speeds of up to 110 mph on roads with a 37-mph speed limit. The reckless driving ultimately came back to bite both cars in the bee-hind, resulting in the Mustang getting spun around and ending up on the sidewalk. There are no reports of injuries, so that’s about the only good thing to come out of this idiotic episode.

PostHeaderIcon 43-Year-Old Crashes a McLaren Senna Just Hours After Delivery

When you name your latest supercar after one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers to ever grace a racetrack, there are a few assumptions to be made. Firstly, the car in question will be blisteringly, outrageously fast, and secondly, it’ll be quite the handful behind the wheel. Unfortunately for one McLaren Senna customer, these were two lessons learned the hard way.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning

This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?

PostHeaderIcon Fifty-One Ferraris Prematurely Meet Their Maker After Super Typhoon Jebi Lays Waste To Japan

A Ferrari dealership located on Rokko Island in Japan suffered the wrath of Typhoon Jebi, causing damages to 51 of 53 new and used Ferrari models at the dealership. According to local media, some of the destroyed Ferraris had already been purchased, and we’re just waiting to be delivered. Dealership employees tried to block the floods caused by the typhoon with tarps and sandbags. Unfortunately, none of those preventive measures worked.

PostHeaderIcon Sending Your Tesla Model S Airborne is Probably Not The Best Idea in The World

A 46-year-old man from Ontario, Canada was charged with dangerous driving after sending his 2016 Tesla Model S airborne as a result of driving too fast for his own good. Local CCTV footage, as well as dashcam videos, captured the Model S doing its best Fast and the Furious impersonation, traveling through the air for almost 100 feet before gravity took hold of it and sent it back down to earth. The Model S may have stuck its landing, but the driver was unable to regain control of the car, which managed to skid across a highway, hopped a curb, careened into a school parking lot, and hit a tree.

PostHeaderIcon Bridge Collapse in Italy Sends Cars Falling 150+ Feet

A bridge in the northwest Italian city of Genoa collapsed on Tuesday, killing 26 people, injuring 15 others, and sending cars crashing from heights of more than 150 feet on to rail tracks, buildings, and a river. The catastrophic scene unfolded just as heavy rains pummelled the Italian city. It’s unclear what led to the bridge’s collapse, but Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo has vowed to get to the bottom of the issue, including holding those responsible accountable for the disaster.

PostHeaderIcon Another One Bites the Dust: BMW Z4 Roadster Fails to Negotiate Curves at the ‘Ring

No matter who you are or what you drive, the Nürburgring is one of the most fearsome race tracks in the world. Combining high speeds, big elevation changes, blind corners, and all other manner of technical challenges, the ‘Ring is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous places in the world to get your speed fix. Despite this, amateurs regularly try their hand at playing race driver here, and as evidenced in the following video, it doesn’t always go as planned.

PostHeaderIcon Ken Block’s Ford Escort Cosworth Crashes During Rally, Turns Into Car-B-Q

Back in April, pro tire-smoker Ken Block announced his limited return to stage rally racing with the unveiling of his awesome early ‘90s Escort RS Cosworth. The Hoonigan crew revealed the four-door sideways superstar on their YouTube channe, and well, we got excited. Unfortunately, it’s looking like the Escort just got ashed.

PostHeaderIcon Oops! Volkswagen Scirocco Rolls 3 Times at the Nürburgring

Understeer is a bitch. Oversteer? Give us loads of the stuff, because if you know how to counter steer, you can rotate the car just fine with the throttle. But understeer, that thing where the car doesn’t turn? It’s the stuff of nightmares, especially on a track as dangerous as the Nürburgring.

PostHeaderIcon The Biggest Crashes of the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed

With so many cars running up that awesome Hillclimb at the Goodwood Estate, one would expect to see a number of epic crashes. Well, not so much this year, but out of 8 or nine crashes, I have singled out 5 of the most amazing. We are lucky to have such a fantastically organized event where drivers can unwind their wheels and actually enjoy themselves.

Not crashing is actually a big thing here as a majority of the cars are, basically priceless. Imagine crashing a Rally Repsol Ford Escort from before. Or the Pre-war Silver-Arrow. This goes to show all the commitment and risks the drivers are prepared to take to be the best at Goodwood.

After all, we can see all the racers hitting the apexes and definitely following the famed words of Mario Andretti – “If everything seems under control, you’re just not going fast enough.”

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Plane Crash Accidents

This one is a little off-topic, but interesting all the same. As my subtitle notes, it may not be best to watch this one if you’re flying anytime soon, but this is the route we’re going today – plane crashes. Some are absolutely horrible, others were very lucky, and there’s even one that was a planned Boeing crash test. Of course, don’t let any of these videos distract you from the fact that it’s been shown time and time again that flying is the safest form of travel. Anyway, here’s our slightly off-topic and somewhat disturbing video of the day. Of course, the scariest part is that this video has more than 20 million views in less than a year’s time, so there’s that.

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Extreme Ultimate Retarded Driver Fails

It seems like every day there is a new compilation of idiot drivers causing bad accidents. This one is from June of 2017, but it’s one we’ve never taken a look at before. You’ll see the usual stuff – people driving too fast and not being able to negotiate turns to people running red lights because something is more important than the lives of other people on the road. There is even a fun little bit where a motorcycle rider flips off a cop and gets a small dose of karma almost instantly afterward. All that and more is in the 11-minute video below. Go ahead and click play to enjoy the shenanigans for yourself.

PostHeaderIcon West Wing Actress Not Happy With Tesla After her Husband’s Model S Catches on Fire

The Husband of a “West Wing” actress Mary McCormack was sitting in traffic when his Tesla Model S suddenly begin to spew fire from underneath the driver’s side. He was flagged by another driver and pulled over, avoiding any injury, but the actress has decided to play the drama card and send a little heat Tesla’s way.

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day – Epic Diesel Truck Fails

We’re not sure what it is, but there’s just something about guys that own big diesel trucks. Whether it’s the “better-than-you” attitude or the “I can conquer all” mindset, they are almost always driving like a douche or getting into something they probably shouldn’t be during. There’s a lot of that in this video. Guys failing at off-roading, playing tug of war, or having their trucks ripped apart as they are pulled out of mudholes that should have never been ventured into in the first place. If you are one of these guys, don’t worry, we don’t hate you. We just like to make fun of you – just like the guys in supercars and mustangs. Go ahead and click play and enjoy the video.

PostHeaderIcon Are Volvos Safe? This Video Says Yes Sir!

A Reddit user posted a video of what appears to be a late-2000s Volvo XC70 getting into a head-on collision with a massive truck. Usually, this is the kind of video that makes you cringe, knowing the occupants of the vehicle were severely injured, but they were driving a Volvo. If you ever questioned whether or not Volvo made safe cars, well this is a real-world crash test that answers with a definite YES.

There isn’t a lot of information to go by, but we know this is an older XC70 that didn’t include things like lane-keep assist or the like. Clearly, the Volvo driver was at fault. Prior to the crazy accident, the vehicle slowly drifts out of its lane and right into the path of that big truck. It doesn’t even appear as if the drive in the Volvo hit his brakes, so he was probably distracted with more important things – you know, a text message, browsing facebook, or watching porn.

The car behind him was the lucky one with a dash cam and was actually able to stop before making things worse, but what happens after that is sheer lunacy. For a collision that would likely result in injury for most cars on the road, this driver seems more angry than anything, throwing a big piece of the dash, which was obviously karma’s way of slapping him in the face, out of the car. I’m sure there were a few naughty words said in the process and, according to later posts, the driver walked away uninjured.

Regardless of what caused the accident, it goes to show one thing – Volvos are pretty damn safe. I’m sure the driver was sore the next day, and he probably got whacked in the face by that piece of dash trim pretty good. But, considering what the outcome could have been, I’m pretty sure he should be writing Volvo one hell of a thank you note – their design philosophy probably just save his life, or at the very least, saved him from serious injury.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go trade in my Volkswagen Golf for an older Volvo XC70. Check out the video below, and I’m sure you’ll want to do the same.

PostHeaderIcon Woman Dies After a BMW 8 Series Prototype Crashes at High Speed

A test driver from BMW took his girlfriend’s mother for a spin in a BMW 8 Series prototype, but things took a turn for the worst when he lost control and hit several trees, causing severe damage to the car and fatal injuries to the passenger. The crash happened around 10pm Sunday night and is still under investigation, but the cause of the accident is said to be “significantly excessive speed.”

PostHeaderIcon GM Executive, Mark Reuss, Should Probably Stop Driving Pace Cars on Indy Car Races

General Motors’ Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing, and Supply Chain, Mark Reuss, crashed a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 on the parade lap of the second IndyCar race at the Detroit Grand Prix. The surreal incident led to a 27-minute delay and prompted the Internet to come down hard on Reuss. Fortunately, neither Reuss nor his passenger, IndyCar official Mark Sand, were hurt after the crash.

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Top 10 Le Mans Crashes of All Time

Race car technology has come a long way, allowing race car drivers to walk away from accidents that would have been utterly disastrous just a couple of decades ago. With that in mind, technology has also allowed us to relive some of those crazy moments time and time again, and that’s exactly what we’re doing here today – looking at the top 10 Le Mans crashes of all time! As a fair warning, these are some pretty scary looking crashes, and the opening video isn’t anything to joke about, but it’s worth watching as it goes to show just how dangerous the sport can be and how fast things can go awry at high speed.

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Best Supercar Show Off Fail Compilation

It seems like people don’t understand that there’s a time and place to play and that the road isn’t it. Sure, Mustang drivers come to mind (I know, it’s getting old, right?) but in reality, we see just as many supercar owners failing miserably as they try to showboat their precious, powerful cars. It’s nice to be wealthy, I’m sure, but apparently, it isn’t enough to be seen in your cool car, you have to show off what it can do. Well, in this video there’s a big handful of idiots who probably knew more about the money they spent than how to drive what they bought. And, it shows. For the record, not all of the cars shown here are “supercars,” but each one of them was served a life-sized piece of karma that will certainly hit the wallet, be it at the repair shop, with the insurance company, or in court after being sued or arrested for reckless endangerment. Anyway, the video is below. Check it out and let us know what you think!
